This feature is only applicable to customers running an application like Beacon Welding.

The operator role allows a team member to manage a robot’s part playlist and change a part's start position but not change any other settings on the part.

Other users are shown a button to request the feature, which sends an email to the billing managers indicating their interest in the feature. You can always reach out to support if you want Beacon Pro Plan and are unsure how to subscribe.

Understand the Operator Role

Beacon comes standard with three team roles: viewer, editor, and manager. These roles control whether a user can view, create, update, or delete robots, charts, parts, playlists and other data that belongs to the team.

In some organizations, an experienced professional configures the part settings and playlists then hands off to another team member the duties of running the robot. This operator may also be an experienced professional, a junior operator, or an intern.

The operator role fulfills the need to empower users to customize the part playlist and start position as needed while ensuring governance and consistency of the part settings themselves.

Manage Team Operators

Assign users the operator role as you would other roles. See Managing Team Members to learn more.
